Event Details

** One Show Only - Limited Tickets **

Merrick Watts is a qualified wine specialist and comedian. Join him on a journey through the wonderful world of wine where he is the idiot but also strangely the expert.

After a sold out series of shows at both the Adelaide Fringe and Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Merrick is bringing his smash hit show to Geelong!

As well as a 70-minute wine tasting show, audience members will receive a three-course meal prepared by the culinary wizards at Mt Dunned. Once the meal is done, our very own DJ Pedro Moshman will be providing the tunes for the kick-on.

Whether you are a connoisseur or an enthusiast, there is something for everyone. Comedy meets wine, laughter meets learning, and you get to drink! What more could you want?

Merrick Watts is a loved radio host and has appeared on TV shows like 'The Project', 'Hughesy, We Have a Problem', and was one of the winners of 'SAS Australia' in 2020.

Get a group of mates together and book now for this perfect Friday night experience – each audience member will taste six great wines, handpicked by Merrick himself, enjoy a three-course meal, and have a dance, good times are guaranteed.

**Please note additional drinks both alcoholic and non-alcoholic will be available at Mt Duneed's fully stocked bar.
